Final Thoughts

 

The 9600 GT really has become a great valued product for people who are gaming on older monitors capable of only 1280 x 1024 with high detail. If you're happy to drop the detail to the medium levels, though, you should get a decent game experience as high as 1680 x 1050 which is great news for 22" wide screen gamers.

 

While ECS haven't done much with the card, the inclusion of not only a full version game, but a recent one is excellent news and helps the card stand out from the pack when compared to some of the others which don't include much more than cables and a driver CD.

 

The only real problem we have with the card is the availability in the land down under, but that's not really ECS' fault. It's not uncommon for companies to release cards with a certain game bundle to specific regions. Fortunately, if you're looking for a 9600 GT and wouldn't mind a copy of Frontlines for a few extra dollars, you're not going to have any issues finding one in the states with companies like Newegg listing them as in stock.

 

The ECS 9600 GT is a good choice for people who are looking for a mid-range graphics card and a game that they might actually play. It's so often we find ourselves looking at game bundles and walk away feeling a bit underwhelmed. It's good to see that ECS are keeping track of what's new on the market and hopefully they follow suit with future graphics card releases.
